Tile Installation – Penn Hills 15235
Porcelain floor tile is a superb choice for a number of spaces. It comes in a large variety of styles and sizes and is long-lasting and simple to clean.
When picking floor tile for your area, be sure to pick a size that goes well with the size of the room. A large room can look too busy with smaller floor tiles. Large size tiles will overwhelm a little room. Floor tiles can be found in sizes ranging from 1" to 2 feet which means you should be able to find a size that looks good in your room.
Additionally, you should consider your decor prior to you buying your floor tile. If you have an elegant looking room then a polished marble floor tile may look wonderful. For those who have decor with a southwestern, Mexican or Italian flair then a rustic natural looking floor tile is the most suitable. An even, polished type of tile will be slick when it gets wet so you may not want to install that inside an entry room or bathroom. Furthermore, floor tile gets very cold so if you are installing it inside a basement, you better invest in a warm pair of house slippers.
Don't forget to select a grout that complements your floor tile. A dark colored grout is best as a white grout will have a tendency to get grubby looking in a short time.
Floor tile Installation in Penn Hills 15235
Installing porcelain tile isn't too difficult, but if you've never done it before and are not very handy to start with you might be better off with a professional. You'll find nothing worse than paying a fortune on floor tile just to have it look bad as you did not install it right!
Once you have the tile set up, put in the grout as per the manufacturers instructions and seal accordingly. It will help to buy a high quality grout and sealer and will also be well worth the additional expense in the long term.
